Inspired by the built spaces of his hometown of Sydney, Australian designer Dion Lee’s eponymous label is intersecting architectural form with feminine fluidity. Founded in 2009 after graduating from the Sydney Institute of Technology the year prior, Dion Lee has become one of the most critically lauded fashion innovators to emerge from the country. Constructed as a dialogue between the garment and the wearer, Lee’s designs utilize a technicality in form reminiscent of intricacies found in the venues and art that have inspired him. Clean lines meet unexpected details, while femininity is given space to expand into a multidimensional rendering of strength and delicacy. Structured jackets meet minimal mini skirts for bold expression, while knit dresses and corset tops pay homage to the curves of the female form. Undulating between bold and soft, technical and sensual, Dion Lee plays with paradoxes and offers a modern approach to innovative fashion design.
